Making History, developed by the Institute of Historical Research, is dedicated to the history of the study and practice of history in Britain over the last hundred years and more, following the emergence of the professional discipline in the late 19th century.
It also covers a variety of themes, from different schools of historical thought to significant issues affecting the profession during this period.
Further information on many of these topics is provided by articles written by experts in the field and drawing on in-depth institutional knowledge.
Interviews with some of today's most distinguished historians have also been conducted, and are available in both audio and transcript form.
In addition, the project resources section includes statistical information on the evolution of the discipline, and a comprehensive bibliography of relevant historiographical publications, as well as collecting in one place the various articles, images and interviews found throughout the site.
